Is it possible to assign a droplet's existing IP as the FloatingIP?

I have an existing app hosted on a DO droplet that I would like to assign a FloatingIP to. I want to know if it is possible to repurpose the currently assigned droplet IP address to be used as the FloatingIP address? That way I don’t have to go an update all the domains that are currently pointing to my droplet.

Example:
Reassign IP address 10.0.0.1 which is assigned to the droplet as the Floating IP. And allow the droplet to have some other IP address.

  • I am aware that this can’t be done via the DO interface. But could it be done by submitting a support ticket? Can the NOC team handle this?
